I'm upgrading an Ibanez copy of a Gibson recording (a 2380 from 1973). I believe Ibanez went the low impedance route, but didn't include the transformer/XLR output. The pickups are certainly very clean and difficult to add any dirt too without turning gain right the way up.
So I'm installing two new high impedance pickups (making new pickup surrounds). These are Adeson copies of the Burns Tri-Sonics).
So my question is, will I need to upgrade the other electronics to compensate for the increased impedance?
The guitar is pretty hummy even with low impedance pickups so I'm shielding with copper tape, but all the components are plus 40 years so would these be prone to introducing hum too? I'm aware that the Adeson's maybe potentially noisy, but I'll be wax potting these.
Look forward to any input, been Googling for days and found nothing so not sure I'm phrasing the question right!
